Girls Kick Off the Year with Winning Ways

2015-10-15 07.50.15 pmOur Girls' Football team last year narrowly missed out on significant success at the county finals. Given the space of a year - and now that they're wiser, stronger and better - they kicked off the Blue Coat sporting calendar with a brilliant performance. Mr Brooks watched from the sidelines and reports the following...

"Blue Coat sent 2 teams to the District Girls' Football Tournament at KLB on Thursday 15th October.  Each team played 5 matches against local opposition (including the other Blue Coat team) in a friendly but highly competitive tournament. Both teams were a great credit to the school showing outstanding sportsmanship, playing as teams and supporting and rallying behind each other when things didn't go as planned.

Team 2 won their first match convincingly with a 6-0 scoresheet, but this was to be their only victory. They did themselves proud and held their heads high and battled to the end of every match - it's much harder to show that level of effort and commitment when you are losing. You made me proud to be a Blue Coat teacher.

Team 1 won all of their matches, only conceding one goal in the whole afternoon. The final match of the afternoon was the nail-biter, with the two highest placed teams facing each other in the last match: Blue Coat and Alexandra Hosea.  A win was needed to ensure our progression to the next round and the girls didn't disappoint with a 4 -1 victory.

Well done to all the girls who took part and we now look forward to the next round in Gloucester later in the year.

Well done to all girls for representing our school so well. Thank you to Mr Brooks and parents for supporting the girls throughout the afternoon.
